for capital gains. companies trying to get a jump on the fiscal cliff. details and the oracle of all my speaking out on tax policy. next, i'll break down why warren buffett is just plain wrong. ♪ gerri: warren buffett is getting a lot of attention this week for his comments on the fiscal cliff . basically, the investing mobil says it rich people, that is people like him, should pay more in taxes. it sounds magnanimous. i believe the case he builds for higher taxes, well, the reasoning as a big hole in it. here is why. the contention that rich people will stop hiring is nonsense. we already know that more than a million americans to employ people and paying there taxes through there individual income-tax. according to the heritage foundation, the amount their taxes would rise would be equivalent to one employee salary. one person there would not hire. we will what is more, rinsed and young says these tax hikes would kill 710,000 jobs. buffett also says that rich people will stop investing. again, nonsense. when you tax something usually get less of it, like cigarette taxes to curb smok

today and he was facing the fiscal cliff, what do you think he would do? >> remember what he did in 86? he sat down with tip o'neill. they agreed that they could have very substantial reduction in tax rates across the board but particularly middle and high income tax rates and offset that base broadening. the result of that was taking the top rate down from 50% to 20%. the impact of bad was to have a significant increase in taxable income. people choosing to take more of their compensation in the form of taxable income and cutting back on tir tax expenditures andeductions and exclusions in working order. so i think that is what ronald reagan would do if he were here now. >> leadership will be key to all this. thank you so much for coming on the show today. >> it's wonderfuto be with you. melissa: cheryl: merrie schapiro is stepping down. she helped lead the government and regulatory response to the 2008 financial crisis and took over after the sec failed to detect the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. her last day will be december 14. it was an exit that many saw coming. the one i recently t

it down to simply what this will entail. when we talk about the fiscal cliff, it is the expiration of legislation that will keep tax rates the way that they are and keep spending levels the way that they are right now. the reason why this is a big deal is because right now, this country is running out tremendous budget deficits. it cannot be sustained over the long term. that is the view from most experts to talk to. the only question is to what degree do you pare back? if you're the head of a family and right now we were planning for your family's future, planning for this week, this month, what you're looking at are two things in your budget -- income and expenses. if you make enough money, you can spend enough money. if you spend more than the make, you have to borrow by putting it on your visa or mastercard. right now, the u.s. is trying to pare that down. you go out and find another job, raising revenue, or you cut spending, like vacations planned in the future, or a combination of both. if the fiscal cliff happens, what you have in essence are tax is going higher, more of you
of the fiscal cliff negotiation may really ride on that point. now at a white house briefing they need to double down on the long held belief households with income above 250,000 dollars must pay a higher rate. they are open to higher taxes but they are pushing the idea of eliminating deductions for high income earners. >> we will continue to wait on the president and hope he has what it takes to bring people together and forge a compromise. if he does we will get there and if he doesn't, we won't. >>> it's that simple. >> president obama is going to meet with the carefully selected group of business leaders to get their input. how the republicans will do the s same. there will be little room for compromise. >> they once again urged the senate to pick up the house passed bill extending the hacks breaks for millionaires and billionaires. as president the senate has considered this bill. we jeekted it on a bipartisan basis. it was load down in this congress. >> republicans are looking for some willingness on the part of the white house to cut spending or maybe tackle big costly entitlement problem
and elsewhere, turned toward the fiscal cliff. the reality is this: if we have a recession in 2013, it is going to hit everybody. unemployment will go up, earnings and net worth will all go down. as people start to realize that, they are going to become more concerned and they are likely to hold back. > it is interesting though, people are going back to basics and paying down their debt, so i guess that's the silver lining in all of this. > > yeah, actually, debt burdens are the lowest that they've been in almost 20 years relative to income; so yes, we have made some substantive progress in that area. > good to have you on the show. that's greg mcbride of bankrate.com. have a good day. > > thank you angie. up next, is the shine on or off tiffany & company? chart talk is next. matt shapiro, president of mws capital, joins us now for some chart talk. good morning to you matt. it feels like you have to be nimble in this market and make the correct stock choices. what are you choosing? > > i agree, and obviously i am sticking to my game plan i have talked about on this show for several years here,
knew about this problem with the fiscal cliff since last july/august of 2011, and here we are on the eve of going off the cliff. >> i think part of the problem is -- see, i still disagree with the fundamentals of what people are calling the fiscal cliff. is the fiscal cliff cutting spending? the sequester? i don't think it leads to economic harm to cut spending. that's what we should be doing. the other half of the fiscal cliff is taxes will go up. i don't want them to go up. if you raise taxes on the top 1%, that's 50% of the nation's fiscal income. if you don't think raising taxes in a recession is a good idea, why would it be a good idea to raise them on anyone? >> greta: so do you think going off the fiscal cliff would necessarily be a bad thing? >> it would be a bad thing to raise taxes. it doesn't make sense to me. i don't accept that cutting spending is bad for the economy. i think cutting federal spending, which means less borrowing up here, is go for the economy, but i do think taxes going up is a bad thing for the economy. i agree with half of the equation of the
's an approach to take you off the fiscal cliff. i think what the president is doing, what the speaker are doing what, did they do over the weekend? they talked together over the phone. did you see them sitting down at a table together? you saw them shaking hands. you watch the president -- or you watched the speaker right after the election and say here's revenues. we want to continue tax rates, but you need revenues. republicans are putting revenues on the table. where are the cuts to government to gets us to solve the problem? if you just do the tax rate, you don't solve anything. gout to bring more revenue n but at the same time you got to control the spending of government. that's the best way to solve the problem once and for all. >> greta: what's your position on raising tax rates on the very wealthy? >> i don't think the tax rates solve the problem. >> greta: does that mean a no? >> revenue. we'll give you more revenue by closing loopholes. >> greta: does that mean no the tax rates? >> you want to solve the problem. i'm tired of just saying -- look, if you do the tax rates, that gets you

lee. >> you wrote an op-ed. while washington is preoccupied with the so-called fiscal cliff, little attention has been given to the fiscal avalanche that will occur if we continue down an unsustainable long-term path causing markets to turn sour on u.s. debt and leading to a spike in interest rates. you're looking at the very long-term picture. they're just trying to get a little budget deal done here. you're real worried about if they don't do this right now what it means for the longer term. tell us about that avalanche. >> the thing about the cliff is we know exactly when it's coming. you can see a cliff. you can see when you're going to hit it. an avalanche is a little bit different. when the conditions are there, when it might happen. but you have no tiechling as to the exact moment that it's going to occur. and so that's what we need to be worried about. there will come a moment at some point in the next few years when people will no longer buy u.s. treasury instruments. at least not at these unbelievably low rates we have today. once that trend starts to reverse itself we'll

questioning their pledge and saying it may stand in the way of getting a fiscal cliff deal done. that's one side of the equation. in exchange, those republicans say, look, we'll back down. but not if we don't get something for it. we want some entitlement reform. here are the big three entitlements -- social security, medicaid, and medicare, combined they make up 43% of federal spending last year. joining me is john avalon, cnn contributor, senior political columnist for "newsweek" and "the daily beast.
